Creative Director and Principal Planner

Although Alicia’s buoyant personality is often the first thing people notice about her, it’s only one of many qualities that she brings to her work as a wedding and event planner. With thirteen years of experience as a boutique planner, she delights in the unique opportunities she has been given to create refined, innovative, and highly personal weddings for every one of her clients.

Her diverse background includes many years in management and theatre arts.

As soon as the moment arose for her to fully realize this vision, she knew that launching her own boutique planning service was the natural next step.

Under her creative and highly knowledgeable direction, she and her trusted team of associates have produced countless high-profile events—each one tailored to the desires of her discerning clientele—that have cemented her reputation as one of Canada’s premier event planners and one of the best wedding planners in the world according to Vogue Magazine. Her success in the field has been a testament to her imagination, her ingenuity, her integrity and especially her passion.

Alicia emphasizes the importance of connecting with people on a personal level, and she is known for making space in her heart for every one of her couples. She never ceases to be humbled by the trust and loyalty she has earned from each of them.
